We reinforce the

We reinforce the fundamental importance of respecting human rights. We also educate and inspire future generations to find strength and joy in diversity. It was with all this in mind that the IHRA dedicated a great deal of effort to developing a wide range of teaching guidelines, available on the IHRA website, to support educators in teaching about the Holocaust. There will come a time when the survivors and other witnesses will no longer be among us to share their memories. This is a universal challenge that all educators face, whether we teach in a classroom in the Netherlands or a university in Canada. And as this publication with its wealth of expertise from around the globe shows, there is much to be gained by sharing best practices and strategies for overcoming challenges beyond national borders. I continue to be impressed by the innovative projects and approaches to Holocaust education being developed around the globe. It is my hope that this publication can provide both a strong foundation and new and inspiring insights on the topic of Holocaust education. I take this opportunity to thank all scholars and educators for their efforts to keep the stories of the Holocaust alive, ensuring that they remain forever seared in our collective memory.
